Experience of new cities in Iran has a long history. Cities like Abadan, Shushtrano, Zahedan, Noshahr and various industrial cities are among its examples. The strategy of new cities began after the approval of the Cabinet of Ministers in 1986, and the responsibility for the construction of these cities was delegated to civil engineering companies. However, the policy of locating new cities in our country has not been favorable and has been more concerned with the fact of state ownership of the land, neglecting other regulations of locating such as urban development capability, proximity to major economic centers, accessibility to roads, desirable distance from the mother city, paying attention to the population centers of the region, attention to the geographical and natural criteria of the region and ... As a result, the new cities have not succeeded in achieving their goals. Shahr-e-Jadid (new city) of Baharestan is one of the four new towns of Isfahan, which has a relatively good location, and has therefore succeeded in some way in attracting and settling the population.
